The Conglomerate blog is generating a group of posts by various law professors who are singing the praises of former Chancellor William Chandler and his contributions to corporate law during his recently completed tenure on the Delaware Court of Chancery. For example, Matt Brodie discusses here how the former Chancellor in his Airgas decision cites to law review articles and addresses the views of various corporate law professors in the court’s opinion. Professor Brodie suggests that the Delaware judiciary’s “opinions reflect a willingness to engage with the academic literature that goes beyond any other court in the nation. It’s not even close.”
Regular readers know that we have mentioned previously on these pages how often opinions from the Court of Chancery cite to blogs and other publications by prominent experts such as Professors Bainbridge and Ribstein.
